*PeopleComm Releases Free Customized Windows BBS Terminal Program!
PeopleComm Floppy Disk Version 1.01a is finally out of beta testing and
is ready to be released. PeopleComm is a freeware program that allows
people to call and use BBS's. This program has several wonderful
Works on Telnet or Dialup!
Created for FIDONET BBS's ONLY!
Customized for your NET or REGION FOR FREE!
Works under Win95+, including XP.
Works on Serial or WinModems.
The only needed to configure is the phone/telnet numbers!
No messy port selections, irq settings, baud rate questions!
Supports ZModem download and BBS Ansi graphics.
Installs from a SETUP.EXE file!
Able to Install/Uninstall from Windows!
Supports Restricted Telnet addresses!
PeopleComm's EXE Fit's on a FLOPPY! And needs no Setup to run!
The Setup program put's an icon on the desktop and in All Programs!
This program was written to allow sysop's to easily get users back on
their BBS's. This program, requires only ONE file to run, that is the executable file. A setup.exe file will fit on a floppy as well, and
leaves about 600K extra space for your own files, plus it does all the
stuff users expect from windows programs (install/uninstall).
It's so easy to run it's scary! After startup, simply select
Telephone or Telnet connection and check the Phone Number or Telnet
Numbers and you're online!
BUT, as it's a FIDONET ONLY BBS Dialer, there is no way to add any
BBS's to the list it comes with. That ability will come with a future
and much more enhanced (but it won't fit on a floppy) version of
PeopleComm. SO What do you do to get your BBS Listed???
Simple! Any RC or NC can request a customized copy for their regions
free of charge. Information will be sent to them upon request as to
what information is needed on the BBS's to be added for your area.
Once that information is received, it will be added and a customized
version will be sent to your RC/NC.
The standards for this program were that it be all contained in one
executable file, and that it fit on a floppy. That a setup.exe be
created that would allow for easy installation into windows. That it
allow for the user to change/modify Download/Upload directories,
telnet addresses, and phone numbers to their liking. That it provide
some information about that BBS within the program itself. It has met
As the author of this version of PeopleComm, I want to assure you that
the ONLY reason I'm doing this is because I loved doing it, and that I
love and support Fidonet. I believe in getting programmers back into
Fidonet, and I believe that we can do so much more than we're doing
now. By encouraging Nets and Regions to work together to make their
own version I feel we will grow as a Net. By restricting the program
to Fidonet BBS's, I feel we will encourage growth within fidonet, and
hopefully a return to actual BBS's being in the nodelist. And lastly,
by making it customizeable by geography, I feel it will engender a
sense of community among Sysops, as well as callers.
If you're interested in programming, are good at creating standards,
enjoy doing artwork, and would like to contribute to the
